CoolSculpting in Pasadena & Los Angeles | Dr. Thomas FACS


Fat. It can be stubborn and annoying, and we praise the absence of it. Although it isn’t a “four-letter word,” it can make us cringe as if it is one. The abdomen is one of the most stubborn areas that tends to carry pockets of excess fat, and many refer to these bulges of fatty deposits as “love handles” or “muffin top.” For years we have been trying to find the magical cure to get rid of stubborn fat. Although fat reduction can’t happen overnight, that doesn’t mean we don’t have any options for achieving our weight-loss goals. In the past, the idea of “freezing off” fat was just a fantasy, but today there is a non-surgical method that does just that to eliminate those midriff rolls. CoolSculpting® is a safe and effective non-surgical treatment designed to target stubborn excess fat in the abdominal area.

Achieved with CoolSculpting®

CoolSculpting® is designed to remove fat naturally from the body without the use of knives, needles, or suction devices. This treatment uses controlled cooling to target and crystallize fat cells. Once crystallized, the fat cells gradually die, and the body naturally eliminates them from the body. Over the next few months following the CoolSculpting® treatment, the remaining cells condense reducing the fat layer.

What Does CoolSculpting® Entail?

A gel pad and applicator are applied to the targeted area. The CoolSculpting® device uses suctioning to draw up the fat bulges between two cooling panels and slowly lowers the temperature. As the cooling begins, patients may initially feel an intense cold firmness and pressure, but this sensation will gradually alleviate. Most patients will go numb within five to 10 minutes into the treatment and comfortably sit through the procedure. They may leisurely read, check their email, or even take a nap during their CoolSculpting® treatment.
